However, I have discovered the bane of my Danish existence. As a student and reasonable pencil pusher I require lots of office equipment. Think of pens, erasers, pencils and paper. But Lo and behold! Denmark decided to make these things outrageously expensive (about 5 euro for an eraser…). So yea…that doesn’t aid the playground designing project. But screw that. Here it is.

A new bike does not have a lock nor does it have any life and if you’re really unlucky, you don’t even have a bell.
